Phil's Predictions for the new iPhone

| 1 Comment
WIth Apple's World Wide Developers Conference this week there are many predictions being thrown around. I have no special inside knowledge, but can't resist throwing my guesses into the mix. Yes - Apple will announce a new iPhone at the WWDC this week. It will have improved technical specifications... a camera with better resolution, video capability, 802.11n Wi-Fi, faster processor, bigger memory etc... But the new iPhone won’t be marketed that way... Apple doesn’t allow itself to be put on the “mine is bigger than yours” technology treadmill. The new iPhone will be marketed as something like : “... and now the world’s first video phone in your pocket...” Put the camera on the same side as the main screen, add video capability, add iChat.... We already have Skype for the iPhone. Voila - pocket video phone. The only challenge is the impact on AT&T’s network in the US.... Perhaps it will start out as Wi-Fi only like Skype for the iPhone.... Whatever Apple does, the new iPhone will be sufficiently cool that I will have to get one soon after it comes out. Oh.... one more thing. Steve makes an appearance during the keynote. He may the the “one more thing” of this keynote.

The current iPhone does not support HSUPA on the 3G uplink ... my additional guess is that the new verion will support HSUPA on the uplink and will be dramatically faster on the uplink than phones on Verizon or Sprint for the near future.

So ... if Apple and ATT would choose to support it ... it IS possible to do two way video chat.
